    Has anyone worked for a company called Mystery Outsource before? I seem to have signed up to them somewhere along the way and they were desperate, so I picked up a PO visit (the ones GfK used to have) for a decent fee. Just wondered what they're like for paying? Their reporting system was not particularly professional!

    I was paid the next month following the assignment, on the 30th. This was for a fashion store though (the one now shopped by AQ).

    Haven't been around lately, but still shopping. December was quiet in this area but did an Eating Company one and got great feedback so was happy with that.

    I did 2 on the same day for GR 2 weeks ago, they just show as 'completed' and 'pending payment' I assume as they haven't been in touch all is well? (These were my first for them)

    GAP on Thursday - My first! I failed the test the first time - Duh! Im out shopping anyway so no biggie and it's been a long time since I've had one

    No shopping next week, I'm off to Gran Canaria :P Hence Thursday shopping.

    Gran Canaria is a great holiday spot this time of year. Why not visit the rum making distilliary on the Island, and take a few piccies too, because you won't remember a thing the next day. :beer: Hope you have a great time there.

    Hey thanks! :) Will be sure to check it out!

    Did a great retail visit earlier today, service was exceptional. Was a pleasure to write the report.

    Can someone please tell me if I'm being dense.

    On RAs site, I have set my visit radius to 0-20 miles.

    But the "visits I can accept" shows only a handful of stores - all of which are miles away - and in random areas - 1 in the very north, 1 right down south etc. Absolutely no where near where I live.

    If I "search for visits outside my area" and manage to locate some cities and counties near me/that I am in - then visits near me do come up - and I can (and have) accepted and shopped some.

    Why I am having to go through that rigmarole to see visits near me rather than ones 200 miles away? Why isn't it just showing me visits close by to start with?

    I must be missing something because no system can be this rubbish! Anyone have any idea what it is that I'm doing wrong?

    Cheers
